I'm an Agronomist

Rebecca Clay, agronomy alumna (2016) swore-in as a Peace Corps Volunteer in June 2017 and has been living and working in a rural community in the foothills of the Himalayans in Lamjung, Nepal since. At site she works with community members to identity and pursue agricultural practices which address issues of malnutrition, soil degradation, and labor outmigration. Here is an account of her experience so far.

“I’m lucky to have been placed at a site where I can see the Himalayan mountains from my bedroom window—breathtaking, and the geologic giants keep my work and life in perspective.

Jacob Perkins graduated in May of 2016 and he is now located in South Central Minnesota, where he is a Retail Sales Representative with Syngenta. His primary job duties are working with and through local retailers to help growers make the best agronomic and financial decisions for their operations regarding crop production products.

What Jacob likes most about his job is that he has the ability to help a grower from the planning stages of their crops, through the growing season if changes are needed, and then finally at the end of the year. He also likes to see what kind of ROI their products are providing for growers.
